I have been making jam like a crazy woman the last couple of weeks. Alicia came over and we whipped out a ton of strawberry freezer jam. Yesterday a few friends got together to make it again because strawberries have been so cheap, but I opted out because I still had SO much jam in my freezer... or so I thought. I am down to 5 pints because it makes such a nice gift. So today I made a bunch of it and thought I would share Julie's recipe because it is fast and calls for 1/2 the sugar of the SureJell recipe. (It is a little thinner, tarter but just as delicious)
1 c pureed strawberries 3 c crushed strawberries 1 pkg gelatin 1 1/2 c sugar
Add the gelatin to 1 c pureed strawberries. In a large microwavable bowl, microwave on high for 1 minute, STIR, 2 minutes, STIR and then for 1 more minute. While the mixture is cooking, add 1 1/2 c sugar to the remaining 3 c crushed berries. Combine well and pour into prepared containers.
